Yes it has been Twenty Years since this programme first appeared on our TV screens, in fact on BBC 2 in this country! It was seen as being a niche market programme not suitable for the main BBC channel. For those of us who like these sort of programmes instead of the endless soaps or, at the time, lots of home makeover shows, The X-Files was (and is) amazing!
Who didn’t want to be Scully or Mulder! The story lines were different to anything else being shown on TV at the time and they were the first to have this male/female business partners but really wanted to be more story line!
At the time we had video players and I always recorded the episodes to watch again and again, until the tapes failed!
Some of my most favourite episodes are Squeeze, Dod Kalm, Humbug, Anasazi, Clyde Bruchman’s Final Repose, How The Ghosts Stole Christmas; hell I like all of them!
In January this year DH bought me a late Christmas Present, the complete collectors edition of the X-Files! Seasons 1-9 and Fight The Future Film! I have been watching my way through the Seasons whilst doing my ironing (I have to watch something when ironing!) and I have just started Season 9! The best thing about this is that when I have finished I can go back and start again from Season 1!!!!
This week Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny were celebrating the 20th Anniversary! It really can’t be 20 years can it? However they are talking about a new film and I will definitely be at the cinema if they do. It would be great if they brought the show back but it would have to have all the same writers, producers, directors etc for it to be the same! They would also have to come up with a way to bring back the Lone Gunmen, but I am sure as it is the X-Files they could do it!
So Happy 20th Birthday X-Files and don’t forget
The Truth Is Out There
Trust No One
Hope you like the green writing, it just had to be green!!!!!
